When September ends...

Trousers-ASOS Reclaimed Vintage
Jewellery-An eclectic mix-H&M,Bali,Italy and Claudia Pink

I'd like to say the reason for my lack of blogging was because I've been crazy busy over the past few weeks, but the reality is, I have not, instead I have embraced and relished in a whole summer of lazy behaviour before embarking on my new teaching adventure this year, which is set to deprive me of any social life for the next 12 months. 

Very rarely do I find a bargain, I am always the girl who pays full price for the dress that goes in the 50% sale 24 hour later, but on this occasion I did in fact find a reduced item that I adore (because lets be serious, a strong percentage of sale items are utter garbage) These spotty wide leg trousers are part of the ASOS Reclaimed vintage range, which I am a huge fan of, I've bought a few of their items and the collection seems to be going from strength to strength. The best part of these trousers is that they cost me £17 english pounds and I just know I will wear them to death - the only downside is that they are prone to creasing (see photos) this aside they truly are dotty pieces of awesomeness! 

I did ponder the thought that these pants paired with a basic tee lacked a little creativity and looked a little dull, I did however decide against this notion (obviously!) and thought I would let the trousers be the star of the show, and well lets face it, everybody loves a basic tee. 

I am very lucky to have some wonderful friends and family in my life who buy me lovely bits of jewellery from all across the globe, on this occasion I am adorned in items from Italy and Bali, holiday pieces always seem better than jewellery bought from the UK for some unbeknown reason.

I've also learnt how to defocus the background of images, I say learnt, what I mean is I'm a complete amateur and can just about make the background of photos fuzzy. I am also incredibly envious of bloggers who have the most amazing professional pictures - girls please do share any tips because I do believe I've been doing this on and off for two years now and my photography skills haven't progressed in the slightest!
